Only 67000 last night: only 88% full.

And still way more than can fit in the Council House!

The point being, your crowds and popularity are receding quicker than Prince Williams hairline

Basing that on an 88 per cent attendance at an FA Cup tie midweek in January. 

 

Pretty sure most rankings will have us as the most popular club in the world. As I said, everyone loves a comeback story.

 

Based on Thailand there is definately more and more young fans supporting City, as you would expect.

 

But I'm afraid popularity is one thing you can't hammer us on Mr Boj. You know that from living abroad.

Foreign fans are fickle and will switch clubs at the click of a finger. They'll follow anyone who's currently winning trophies. Well, maybe not Spurs but almost anyone 🤣

Either way, we are still massively popular all over the world. 

 

I don't think this line of attack is worth pursuing..... 67,000 for a midweek 3rd round cup tie in January actually seems quite good.

 

Will you buying Garry Cook's book Mr Boj? Now there's a greasy piece of work.....

Oh my bad... it was an article which BB recommended, not a book.

 

Anyway... the important point is that he's greasy.

Looking better for Ole now, remember Ole is the only manager who took 1 point off Liverpool this season. Now lets see what will happen on Sunday, another draw?

Balo, question for you. How many Man City fans do you see in Norway?

Not that many compared to United of course, but City on its way up over the last 10 years.  Personally I know one City supporter I met over 30 years ago. 

(Un)Official numbers members of Norwegian supporter clubs 2019: 
 

  1. Liverpool 49.010 (+21.8%)
  2. Manchester United 42.573 (+5.6%)
  3. Arsenal 7197 (+2.5)
  4. Tottenham 5260 (-2.6%)
  5. Leeds 5190 (+17.6%)
  6. Manchester City 2456 (+9.8%)
  7. Chelsea 1715 (-9.5%)
  8. West Ham 898 (-2.1%)
  9. Stoke 710 (-4.8%)
  10. Everton 575 (-7.9%)

Couldn't have asked for a more accurate answer Balo - thank you!

 

So 2,000, in comparison to 42,000. Don't talk about fan numbers please. 

 

No further questions your honour.

I think most Leeds members must be over 50 years old , Leeds back in the days were entertaining to watch. 

Probably explain why most of the paying members support Liverpool or United.
Been on top of the league since the early beginning. That's history for you.

I would think Haaland and Eirik Bakke could also be a factor.

Not really, this goes back to the late 60's and 70's and 80's when Norwegian and Swedish national TV started to show live games from England every Saturday.  
It was all free back then and "every" kid growing up found an English team to support. Leeds had some great players back then.

LOL interesting history that one. Norwegian TV again, they had the rights to show one live game every Saturday back in the 70's, and guess who were the most shown team ?  Stoke. 

I remember being a kid myself in the mid 70s and I think I witnessed many boring games when Stoke was involved , I think I  can name some Stoke players for you. :biggrin:
